I chanced upon the new outlet of Ming Fa when collecting my birthday cake from The Pine Garden cake shop, which is just a few shops away. I remember i ever eaten at their outlet in Thomson and their Bak Chor Mee was quite nice. It was unexpectedly quiet during lunch time. One of the ladies was quite friendly, she told me that they are only about a month old. She said, they opened on the 17 September and still not many people seem to know about their existence. The other lady was telling me that this outlet is operating on 24 hrs, just like the one in Thomson Road.
I decided to go with their Signature Noodle at $4.50 and i wanted it with Mee Kia. The portion was quite substantial, serving along with braised mushroom, braised meat, sliced meat, a fried dumpling, a piece of dried beancurd with filling, half of an onsen egg and a piece of leaf lettuce. I also ordered a glass of iced coffee to go with it.
I have requested for extra amount of chilli to be added but its level of spiciness was still mild. The Mee Kia was nicely cooked to the right texture and it did not clump together even after left it for a while. That friendly lady came to chat with me when she spotted me spending some time taking picture. She asked, "So, how is it? Does it take like the one at Thomson Road?" I nodded. She then said, 'Hope to see you come back more often to have our noodles." I liked it that she made an effort to interract with the customers.
On their menu, there are also Curry Chicken Noodle, Fishball Noodle, Pork Ribs Noodles and even toasts with half-boiled eggs. This is likely to be my other usual lunch place near home.
